There’s nothing more magical than a royal love story, and this past weekend we got another glimpse at sovereign wedded bliss. Her dress, custom-made by Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos. Her father, Prince Andrew, walked her down the aisle. And her something borrowed? The Greville Emerald Kokoshnik Tiara, nearly 100 years old, encrusted with emeralds and diamonds, gifted for the day by Queen Elizabeth. On Friday, October 12, on a picturesque fall day in London, Princess Eugenie of York married her longtime beau, Jack Brooksbank in the fairytale setting of St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.
The familiar venue, befitting of momentous nuptials — the Duke and Duchess of Sussex wed there earlier this year — was filled with over 800 guests, including members of the royal family and celebrity royalty alike. Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, Naomi Campbell, Cara Delevingne, and Kate Moss were in attendance to watch the stunning bride and groom say “I do”.
Wearing a custom white gown with fabric made special for the occasion, the radiant bride opted for a fold-over neckline accentuating her décolletage and showing off a childhood scar on her back. In honor of inspiring young girls, Eugenie didn’t shy from showing the badge of strength she gained from a scoliosis surgery at age 12. In a teary ceremony surrounded by friends and family, as well as Prince George and Princess Charlotte in the wedding party, the couple were serenaded by Andrea Bocelli and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
Along with the tiara, the bride wore matching emerald earrings gifted by her groom to complete her ensemble. For the post-nuptial festivities, Eugenie transformed into a blushing vision in another one-of-a-kind gown, this time by American designer Zac Posen. The newly wedded couple have been together for seven years and we can’t wait to see their love story unfold.
